DMTI Spatial continues to set the pace when it comes to creating innovative mapping products and the tradition continues with the release of the highly anticipated CanMap Water V1.0.
“The demand for this product has been overwhelming,” says John Fisher, DMTI Spatial’s President and CEO. “With over 891,863 square kilometers of freshwater lakes, ponds and rivers in Canada, this nationwide mapping dataset is ideal for consumer navigation and recreational GPS products, travel and tourism Web applications, wildlife and environmental studies, and much more.”
CanMap Water V1.0 is Canada’s first detailed hydrography file complete with naming for major water features. This national file also has a combination of attributed boundary and point file features in addition to the demarcation of many “double-line” rivers from adjoining lakes. The detail of this latest CanMap product provides accurate water foundations, giving a realistic geographical representation of the area.
From consumer web based applications to PDA displays to navigable water body analysis, CanMap Water is an essential component of any GIS tool kit.
